Iñaki Godoy Spent 80 Days on a Ship to Prepare for Season 2 of 'One Piece'!

We all know that Netflix’s live-action adaptation of Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece manga became a massive hit and is still regarded as the best live-action adaptation of an anime. Netflix absolutely has a hit with the series and all the fans are eagerly waiting for the second season to start. But, it’s not just the fans who are preparing for the upcoming season, as the main actor from the series, young Iñaki Godoy, decided to live on a ship for 80 days in order to prepare for the second season of the series.

Iñaki Godoy plays Monkey D. Luffy in the series, the main character of Oda’s work, who decides to become a pirate so he can succeed Gol D. Roger as the Pirate King. He gathered his crew, the Straw Hat Pirates, in the first season, and they are now ready to start their adventure, which is what motivated Godoy to prepare for Luffy’s adventures at sea.

The filming of Season 1 took place in South Africa and lasted 10 months, but a lot of the story took place on land. In Season 2, the crew is going to be more at sea, so Godoy decides to live on a boat for 80 days in order to prepare. This has been confirmed on Twitter (now X):

This was an interesting and enlightening experience for Godoy, who also commented on it on his blog. And while you can read the full post here, we are going to give you the most interesting remarks in this article:

After weeks of hard work, lack of sleep, crazy weather, and too much cleaning; I’m finally done with my ship adventure. I’m now back to my land life, with hot showers, whatever food I want, and access to the internet at any time. But something feels different. There’s a very interesting phenomenon that occurs to people after being at sea for a long time. They get so accustomed to ship life, that when they touch land again, their bodies don’t know how to react. Your legs try to move with the waves like they are used to, but there are no waves anymore. You get dizzy, lose your balance, and sometimes even feel a little sick. You might be off the ship, but the ocean is still in you. Sailors call this strange condition; “sea legs.”

I didn’t really do much to help, I only let go of the line that was keeping us anchored to the docks. A very small contribution, yet still a necessary one. While sailing, I got my first taste of seasickness. I was dizzy and felt like I was going to vomit any time, so I laid down to try to recover. While on the floor, I looked above me and saw the main sail catch the wind next to the bright sun. I felt the hot temperature and fresh breeze touch my face at the same time, I smelt the sea, tasted the salt, and listened to the waves. Suddenly the movement that was making me sick started to feel a little bit better, and better, and better…

(…)

The days went by, and after learning our responsibilities we were now starting to work more. We began classes, did our cleanup jobs, sailed to our first island, and started night watches. A ship is required to always have someone on watch, which means sleep quickly became very precious. Some days I had the 1:00 to 2:00 watch, others 4:00 to 5:00, and others 23:00 to 00:00. However, my favorite one was the 5:00 to 6:00. Because after being exhausted and alone for a long time, I was rewarded with the sunrise. However, even when I didn’t have that watch, I always really enjoyed just looking at the stars at any of the other shifts.

I visited a lot of different islands, met many interesting people, and saw breathtaking sites. Like the waterfalls in Dominica, or the hot springs at St Lucia. One of the most amazing things about the Caribbean is its nature, and the locals are very aware of that. They take deep care of both their flora and fauna, after all, it’s not only very beautiful but is also a very important source of income. There is lots of tourism in the Caribbean, people from all parts of the world go there to enjoy its nature and culture. Some arrive in catamarans, a few in superyachts, and others in schooners (like us). During my time sailing, I frequently saw different ships pass right next to us and wave. It always made me happy knowing that even if we all came from different backgrounds, we were all connected by the sea. A concept that I believe especially applies to the Ocean Star crew, my crew.
